INFO FOR CEREMONY MUSIC

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?
Instrumental - Duo, Instrumental - Solo, Instrumental - Trio, Soloist / Vocalist
What instruments does your group play?
Flute, Organ, Piano, Saxophone
What is your usual attire?
I wear wedding-appropriate attire, which depending on the client's requirements, can be customized as necessary.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
If you are in the Hudson Valley, I am more than happy to share with you my performance schedule to come hear me in person. Otherwise, I recommend that people check out my website at www.andreashaut.com. The site has performance MP3s - including some solo classical piano music well-suited for weddings.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
If I am playing solo piano, I only require a few minutes of setup time. Playing with a keyboard requires that I will probably arrive about an hour prior to my starting time.
How much space do you usually require?
As a solo pianist, as long as there is enough room to sit comfortably at the piano, that is plenty of room. If I will be providing a keyboard, there will need to be a nearby electrical outlet, but once again, I do not require very much space to perform.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Any expenses associated with travel will be incorporated into my stated fee. There will be no additional charges beyond the price that you are quoted.

We booked Kazz Music and Andrea's cocktail hour was an additional benefit - a no-brainer decision. She played wonderfully, and, despite the fact that cocktail hour is a chaotic, really fun time, she still managed to shine. Definitely book Andrea when you book Kazz and you will not regret it - not just from an ease of coordination standpoint, but also because she is an awesome musician.

Andrea did a fabulous job playing our ceremony. We went a non traditional route with our ceremony music, picking three Motown songs. We were very appreciative that she was willing to be flexible and do something different. She took the songs and made them work perfectly. I would absolutely recommend her!!

Andrea did my ceremony and cocktail hour. Couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I was behind on getting things to her and she was still able to accommodate above and beyond my expectations. Andrea ended up writing a solo piano arrangement of Tenderness a few days before your wedding which added to how perfect my day was. If you book the Kazz music orchestra it's a no brainier to book Andrea and anyone else in the group for ceremony and cocktail hour.

Andrea played at our ceremony before joining the band, Kazz Music, to play at our reception. The ceremony was music was delightful and exactly what we had hoped for. In addition to playing the somewhat traditional classical songs that we had asked for Andrea was incredibly accommodating in helping us add some very special personal touches. We had an uncle sing a Beatles song at the end of the service and Andrea graciously came early to help rehearse the song; we needed extensive wiring, sound and mics to be set up for our outdoor garden ceremony, all of which Andrea and Kazz made sure was done professionally and hours in advance. Our ceremony was exactly as we pictured it to be (or better.)

Andrea played our wedding ceremony and also helped arrange for a violinist, Emily. The combination of violin and piano was perfect! For preparation, Andrea was great to work with, knows a huge volume of music, and dealt with our million plus last minute ceremony music changes!!! They were well on time, professional, and incredible musicians on top of all that! We're truly grateful to have had them as part of our ceremony and would highly recommend them to any and all. Please feel free to contact if there's any questions!
Cheers,
alex + jeanette

We hired Andrea and the Kazz Band for our wedding at the Waterside 10/12/12. Andrea is an excellent pianist that added a classical touch to our wedding ceremony. We challenged her with some of our song choices and she performed them all perfectly (guns n roses sweet child of mine, radiohead, and of course we needed some classical canon in D for the walk down the isle). I highly recommend Andrea! You will not be disappointed!

Andrea Shaut was a pleasure to work with and provided incredible services for our wedding. Andrea was critical in helping with our ceremony music - to make sure we were comforatable with our selection she invited us to her music studio and played several songs until we got the right mix. Not only did Andrea spend a lot of time with us prior to the wedding she kept in touch through the process and then performed amazingly at the cermony.
